About the project
Caia, meaning pure or beautiful lady in ancient Greek, is the latest café addition to the trendy Boxpark designed by Kart Group on buzzing Al Wasl Road in the Jumeirah neighbourhood of Dubai. The restaurant is inspired by the cloud-piercing mountain terrains of the United Arab Emirates. The earthy, mountainous palette gives a natural, bright and inviting tone to the restaurant. The minimalistic design approach is a clear juxtaposition to the jagged mountain detailing in the accent wall and full height rock corner. The muted decorative paint finish matches the stone flooring throughout the bright space.
At the centre of the design lies an impressive five metre stone counter which forms the hub of the restaurant. The same stone is used throughout and used as the tabletops, accent decoration, and an impressive floating planter. Various Maldivian palms form the greenery throughout completing the natural theme.
